MOSCOW, May 9. /TASS/. Eurasian Economic Commission’s Head Viktor Khristenko expects that the documents on Kyrgyzstan’s joining the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) will be ratified by the Russian parliament at the spring session.
"I hope that, as my experience shows, everything will be done within the framework of the spring session, if speaking about the Russian parliament. It will be probably accomplished by the summer," Khristenko told reporters on Friday adding that EAEU other countries were expected to follow suit soon.
"The heads of state expressed a wish not to delay ratification procedures," the head of the Eurasian Economic Commission said recalling that a package of documents on the country’s membership in the EAEU signed on Friday would be delivered to the parliaments of the EAEU members and Kyrgyzstan.
"So in the foreseeable future Kyrgyzstan will become a full-fledged member of the Union," Khristenko said noting that the country had managed to modernise drastically customs checkpoints, veterinary labs and so on. It will enable Kyrgyzstan to remove customs checkpoints from the border with Kazakhstan after the ratification and by doing so to "reach the outer borders of the expanding union.".
